If I can't buy malaysian coconut jam (kaya) at kalustians where can I buy it?
I read about it in a book and it sounded fantastic. But they didn't know what I was talking about!
You can buy it in Chinatown. They definitely have coconut jam at Hong Kong Supermarket.

I bought it at Johnny Air Mart, the Filipino grocery store on Ave A between 13th and 14th. I don't know if it's Malaysian, per se, but it seems to be more or less what you're looking for. The jar says "Coco Jam" haha.
